One of our customers has generously offered to collect donations of kids' mittens and hats to be distributed at Northfield schools to children who need them.
We have a collection bin set up in the shop. Donations can be dropped off before Thanksgiving -- now that the winter weather has begun, items will be collected and distributed a few times this month.
Donations to NOT have to be handmade; commercially made items are fine!
Mittens are especially needed. We suggest the following patterns, which are free, quick and come in many sizes: Northfield Yarn's Embellished Mittens and Tin Can Knits' Maize Mitts and World's Simplest Mittens.
